Adding to the problem is Mei’s (Rosalie Chiang) overprotective mother, Ming (voiced by Sandra Oh), who’s seen in the trailer sneaking to watch over her at school, causing an altercation with a security guard that leads to one of Mei’s panda-sized incidents.

Turning Red is also the first feature-length film from director and writer Domee Shi, who had previously worked for years as a storyboard artist at Pixar before stepping into the spotlight with her Oscar-winning short Bao in 2018.

Turning Red is set to hit theaters on March 11th, 2022, and like the recently teased Encanto (coming from Walt Disney Animation Studios), it represents a restored faith in Disney that families, in particular, will be returning to theaters soon. The company had previously moved its last year and a half’s worth of animated films — including Luca, Soul, and Raya and the Last Dragon — to either exclusive or hybrid releases on Disney Plus due to the shuttering of theaters during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Pixar's Turning Red Teaser Trailer Revealed

Pixar is finally ready to give fans a closer look at its next anticipated project with the first teaser trailer for Turning Red, and it looks absolutely delightful. The new trailer starts out in a school as Mei attempts to get through class, but she is quickly faced with the situation every child dreads...their parent showing up at school. Actually, scratch that, the worst nightmare is your parent hovering outside of your classroom behind a tree and causing a scene, which unfortunately is exactly what happens, and that's when we see Mei transform into a giant Red Panda. You can check out the full teaser in the video above.

Someone from the school goes to ask Mei's mom what's going on and she starts pointing out her child is in the class, and that of course draws the attention of all of Mei's classmates and even the teacher. As the scene breaks out, Mei starts to transform, and then we see her as a Red Panda. She quickly bolts and starts to make her way home.

Mei starts moving across the rooftops as her mother tries to follow her from the ground below, and then Mei leaps across the street and the title hits the screen. We then see a bonus scene where Mei is attempting to calm herself, using brushes on her fur in a calming exercise. It works initially, as she transforms, but then when she gets excited about that very thing she transforms back into a panda.

Turning Red is the anticipated project from director Domee Shi, who wowed Pixar fans with the Oscar-winning and overall amazing short Bao as well as work on films like Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur, Toy Story 4. Turning Red follows a young 13-year-old girl named Mei, who is dealing with all the normal struggles of her teenage years and the body changes that come with it. That's challenging for anyone, but things are even more chaotic for Mei.

That's because Mei is dealing with something no other child has to, and that's turning into a giant fluffy red panda when she gets too excited. As noted in the first look during Disney's presentation, kids are excited...well, all the time, so this obviously introduces some challenges into Mei's life.

‘Turning Red’ First Trailer: Pixar Unleashes a Beast in New Film from ‘Bao’ Oscar Winner

Yahoo Entertainment 13 July, 2021 - 07:29am

The official synopsis for “Turning Red” reads: “Young actress Rosalie Chiang lends her voice to Mei Lee, a 13-year-old who suddenly ‘poofs’ into a giant red panda when she gets too excited (which is practically ALWAYS). Sandra Oh voices Mei Lee’s protective, if not slightly overbearing mother, Ming, who is never far from her daughter—an unfortunate reality for the teenager.”

IndieWire spoke to Shi in 2018 about “Bao” and her journey to joining Pixar. “I was afraid that it would be too dark and too weird of a story to tell at Pixar,” the filmmaker said at the time. “But I pitched it to Pete Docter [‘Inside Out’] and he became a champion. He said it was cool and different and encouraged me to keep the twist ending.” That’s what got “Bao” greenlit at Pixar. “It’s specific and a cultural piece, but the themes of family are universal, so I think that’s another thing our leadership was drawn to,” added producer Becky Neiman-Cobb. “It’s cute and weird.”

The success of “Bao” opened the door for Shi to direct “Turning Red” at Pixar. “I definitely want to keep putting in all the elements that I love from ‘Bao’ into a feature,” Shi told IndieWire. “That weirdness, that fun energy, the surprises. But it’s still early.”

Pixar recently opened its most recent effort, “Luca,” straight to streaming via Disney+. The film earning strong reviews, with IndieWire awarding the friendship comedy a B+ review. “The shortest Pixar movie since ‘Toy Story’ is also one of the most grounded and enjoyable coming-of-age stories the studio has ever told,” IndieWire senior film critic David Ehlrich wrote of the feature. “At times, ‘Luca’ is so modest, so restrained, so not about sentient action figures or a family of superheroes or the nature of the human soul that it almost doesn’t feel like a Pixar film at all.”

Disney and Pixar’s “Turning Red” releases March 11, 2022. Watch the film’s first official trailer below.
